Khloe Kardashian returns to working out after baby

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star wasn’t allowed to work up too much of a sweat for the first month after her daughter True was born, but she’s thrilled that her doctor has finally given her the go-ahead to get back in the gym and focus on her body.

Taking to her Snapchat account on Thursday (10.05.18), she said: “Today is the first day that I’ve been allowed to work out with my trainer. And I’m super excited, I had my first workout and I’m so exhausted but it feels so good to finally sweat again and feel like I’m evolving and doing something for my body and mind.”

However, the 33-year-old beauty has found it somewhat of a “struggle” to get back into the “groove of working out” because her body isn’t as strong as it was before the baby.

She explained: “It is a struggle getting back into the groove of working out – mentally I’m strong but physically it’s just not the same. My body is not doing what my mind wants it to do. So it’s a struggle but it’s only day one.”

Khloe is also finding it tough trying to fit her workouts around her little girl – whom she has with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson – because she constantly wants to feed.

She said: “I need to motivate myself and it’s also a struggle trying to fit in working out in between feeding. No two days are the same. True is so great but still I can’t predict if she’s going to sleep for the whole two hours or if she’s hungry.”

The ‘Revenge Body’ host is planning to document her fitness journey on her social networking sites so she can help motivate other mothers who are struggling to get back into shape.

She added: “Baby True is a month old today so it’s a big day for both of us! So I’m going to be documenting me trying to get this body back, my mind, everything strong. I want mind, body and soul and I want everything aligned and in zen and trying to now do this with my sweet little baby girl.”

BBNaija 2018: Again,Cee-c denied having a relationship with Ebuka

Controversial Big Brother Naija 2018 first runner up, Cee-c has opened up on the reported relationship with show host, Ebuka Obi Uchendu.

While the show was on, reports emerged that Cee-c was dating Ebuka before he got married.

But in an interview with Media Room on Wednesday, Cee-c denied having a relationship with Ebuka.

Cee-c said she was surprised to hear about her relationship with Ebuka, because she only met him during a pageant and for a Business presentation.

She said, ”This is one of the things that surprised me when I got out of Big Brother house because I never suggested that I and Ebuka dated. He is a married man for God’s sake.

”The first time I mentioned Ebuka in the show was when he asked us of our role model and I kept saying he is, because he is a lawyer and so am I.

”I kept wondering how he is relevant in the industry, despite not being an actor or an artist.

”I have met Ebuka outside the house, but it was not like a personal meeting, it was just during a beauty pageant he was hosting and I was a contestant. I remember I also had a business proposal and I wanted to work with him because he is a brand influencer.

”I also remember I met him and did a presentation before the house, that was the only time I met him. It is possible Ebuka might not remember me cause he met a lot of people.

”This even happened months before the show. When I was doing the Big Brother thing, he never contacted me and I didn’t either.”

Kylie Jenner 'anxious' about leaving baby daughter for work

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star decided to use the annual fundraising event, held in New York on May 7, to make her red carpet return following the birth of her little girl Stormi three months ago, but she really struggled to let her hair down properly as she just wanted to get back to her baby.

Speaking to People.com, Kylie’s mother Kris Jenner – who also attended the event – said: “That child never stops. She got right back in the saddle. And I love that about her. She’s really so impressive. And she’s such a good mom. She’s so dedicated to her baby.

“We were at the Met Ball and all she could focus on when we were done was getting home. She’s like, ‘Come on we’ve got to go see Stormi!’ It was really sweet to see her anxious to get home to Stormi.”

And, although she’s still trying to find her feet when it comes to motherhood, the 20-year-old beauty was determined to throw her family a spectacular dinner over Easter last month.

Kris explained: “At Easter, Kylie had a newborn and that’s a major time when you have a first baby and you’re that young and you’re trying to figure it all out.

“And she hosted the family’s Easter which is not an easy task! She had this elaborate gorgeous party that she wanted to do for all of us just out of love because she wanted to make sure that we had this amazing morning after church. She’s always doing things like that.”

Kris – who became a mother for the first time at the age of 22 when she gave birth to her daughter Kourtney – can see herself in Kylie because she’s so dedicated to her baby and her business.

The 62-year-old momager said: “I do see myself in Kylie. She hasn’t stopped! And she does remind me of me in that way. I’m so proud of her. I just beam when I watch her.”

Kylie gave birth to her daughter Stormi, whom she has with her boyfriend Travis Scott, on February 1 and had already thrown herself back into her Kylie Cosmetics business two weeks after the delivery.

Woman suing Chris Brown over alleged rape at party

An unnamed woman has sued Chris Brown, claiming she was raped by one of his friends at the singer’s home.

The accuser, identified in legal papers as Jane Doe, says she was invited to a party at Brown’s house in February, 2017 and taken to a bedroom, where the alleged assaults began.

She and other women were supplied cocaine, marijuana and other drugs and then intimidated into performing sexual acts with Brown and another man, named Lowell Grissom, a rapper who goes under the stage name Young Lo. The accuser asserts the environment felt similar to a hostage situation due to guns present in the home, with Brown accused of brandishing a firearm.

Jane Doe claims she tried to leave but Brown’s female friend grabbed her by the throat and forced her to perform oral sex by sitting on her face for cunnilingus.

To make matters worse, Doe claims in the legal papers, obtained by TMZ, the woman was menstruating and left her with blood all over her face.

As she showered, Grissom entered the bathroom, took her to a nearby bed and raped her. He raped her again against a washing machine before she left the house by hailing a cab through a rideshare app. She then immediately sought help at a rape treatment centre and allegedly filed a police report.

The unnamed woman has hired Gloria Allred to represent her and at a news conference on Wednesday, the top celebrity lawyer called her client’s complaint “one of the most horrific sexual assault cases.”

“Our client, Jane Doe, has been severely traumatized by what she was forced to suffer,” the attorney added.

The unnamed accuser is seeking general and specific damages for the alleged sexual assaults, including up to $50,000 in civil penalties.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson has confirmed to PageSix Brown is not being investigated in relation to the reported incident.

“At this time, there are no open investigations against Chris Brown,” the representative said.

Jay-Z's mom didn't realise the impact her coming out song would have

The 48-year-old rapper’s parent collected the Special Recognition Award at New York’s 2018 GLAAD Media Awards at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel on Sunday night (06.05.18), where she opened up about their duet ‘Smile’ and how it has “inspired” other members of the LGBT community to tell their story.

Gloria revealed she identifies as a lesbian when she duetted with her son on the track – which appeared on his latest album ‘4:44’ – in which the pair celebrate her sexuality, and revealed what it was like to keep quiet for the sake of Gloria’s brood.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine at the ceremony, Gloria admitted: “I didn’t realise how we touched so many lives.

“I’m just glad that I can inspire people.”

After collecting her award, Gloria gave a speech where she thanked her family for their support and her partner for setting her “free from the shadows”.

She said: “I accept it with pride and joy on behalf of my son and myself.

“Thanks to my family for loving me unconditionally, no matter what. Thanks to my partner, for loving me and helping me free myself from being in the shadows.

“Thanks to you, to all the people whose lives I touched, for your support, by just telling my truth.”

Gloria added that she wanted to protect her brood “from ignorance” by keeping her sexuality a secret for so many years and insisted that it wasn’t “horrible” not being out, but she didn’t feel “free”.

She continued: “‘Smile’ became a reality because I shared with my son who I am.

“Not that people didn’t know; I was just someone they didn’t talk about but they loved me anyway.

“But for me, this was the first time that I spoke to anyone about who I really am.

“My son cried and said, ‘It must have been horrible to live that way for so long.'”

“My life wasn’t horrible, I chose to protect my family from ignorance.

“I was happy but I was not free.”

The ‘Encore’ hitmaker – who has six-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, and 10-month-old twins Rumi and Sir with his wife Beyonce – previously admitted he “really cried” when his mother came out to him, as he was “so happy for her”.

The ‘Girls Trip’ star – who also has 19-year-old son Jaden with her spouse – admitted she keeps a “therapy fund” for these kinds of situations with her brood.

She continued: “How did that happen?! I was like, ‘Lord have mercy, what did you see? Thank God I have some therapy fund put aside for you.’

“It wasn’t funny in the moment.”

The 46-year-old actress was thankful that Willow wasn’t left disturbed by what she witnessed, and that she knew it was “private time”.

Jada said: “She was like, ‘That’s private time.’

“She said she didn’t really see anything. But she knew she had just walked in on a very private moment.”

The ‘Bad Moms’ star decided not to tell Will about the situation their daughter found herself in, and she confessed she can’t wait to see his reaction when he hears about it.

She laughed: “He does that to me all the time. I’ll sip on my little tea and (watch).”

Jada previously revealed what to expect from ‘Red Table Talk’.

She explained: “‘Red Table Talk’ is about raw truth, love and deep passion. My mother is old school, Willow is new school, and I find myself right in the middle.

“I’ve done a lot of sharing and growing on Facebook. Being able to engage with the Facebook Watch community in such a deeply personal way is amazing, and I’m excited to be part of something new.”

“I have a whole lot of things to focus on and she also has to accomplish a lot.

Sylvester Stallone back for 'Rambo 5

Sylvester Stallone is heading back to the big screen as John Rambo for a fifth movie.

The Creed star’s Vietnam vet character, who first appeared in 1982’s First Blood, will tackle Mexican crime bosses in his latest adventure.

Movie mogul Avi Lerner and his Millennium partners will be taking the film to the Cannes Film Festival in France this week. Lerner will produce alongside Stallone, who is also writing the script, but the veteran action man reportedly won’t direct the project, despite directing the last Rambo saga, 2008’s Rambo.

The plot surrounding Rambo 5 will centre upon the daughter of one of the character’s friends, who is kidnapped in Mexico. Rambo crosses the U.S.-Mexican border to grapple with violent cartel bosses as he seeks to get the girl back and take her home to safety.

Stallone, who is currently working on the Creed sequel with director Stephen Caple, Jr., hasn’t always been a fan of bringing back Rambo for a fifth film, and two years ago, producer Lerner was reportedly considering a franchise revamp, which would not feature the Rocky star.

Reports suggested Millennium bosses were seeking a younger actor to take over the role in Rambo: New Blood, which The Iceman filmmaker Ariel Vromen was on board to direct from a script by Brooks McLaren, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is not clear what has become of that project.

The character of John Rambo was created by author David Morrell.

As well as First Blood and 2008’s Rambo, Stallone also played the character in Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III in 1985 and 1988, respectively.

Sandra Bullock stalker found dead

A man, who was previously charged for breaking into Sandra Bullock’s house in 2014, was found dead after a 5-hour stand-off with a SWAT team.

According to NBC Los Angeles, Joshua James Corbett died on Wednesday of a self-inflicted injury after refusing to leave his house when police showed up to arrest him.

LAPD did not disclose as to why they wanted to arrest Corbett but later confirmed to E! News that the man claimed to have a weapon and threatened to kill them, resulting in a request for SWAT personnel.

After trying to coax Corbett out of the building for 5-hours the SWAT team went in to find the 42-year-old dead of a self-inflicted wound that was reportedly not the result of a gunshot.

Corbett was arrested inside Bullock’s residence in June 2014. The Gravity star was forced to hide in her closet and directed police through her home in a 15-minute emergency services call.

Corbett pleaded not guilty to felony charges of burglary, stalking and possession of a stockpile of weapons at the time.

Investigation says Prince was isolated, addicted and in pain

After Prince had to be revived from a drug overdose a week before his death, one friend told the musical superstar that he needed to stop taking painkillers.

But Prince said he couldn’t — his hands hurt so much that if he quit, he’d have to stop performing.

“This piano tour I think was getting to his hands,” singer Judith Hill told investigators, according to a transcript of her interview.

Those words, found amid hundreds of pages of interviews between investigators and Prince’s closest confidants, provide insight into just how much the man known for his energetic performances and larger-than-life personality was suffering. The documents open parts of Prince’s life that the intensely-private celebrity tried to keep from even his closest confidants.

“How did he hide this so well?” Prince’s closest friend and bodyguard Kirk Johnson said in an interview with detectives. While Johnson said he didn’t realize that opioids were a problem until that overdose, he had noticed Prince was unwell before that and took him to a doctor.

In their zeal to protect Prince’s privacy, Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said some of the singer’s friends might have enabled him.

Prince was 57 when he was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park studio compound in suburban Minneapolis on April 21, 2016. An autopsy found he died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50 times more powerful than heroin.

Authorities say it is likely Prince didn’t know he was taking the dangerous drug, which was laced in counterfeit pills made to look like a generic version of the painkiller Vicodin.

The source of those pills is unknown and no one has been charged in Prince’s death.

Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg admitted that he prescribed another drug, oxycodone, under Johnson’s to protect Prince’s privacy, and paid $30,000 to settle allegations the drug was prescribed illegally.

Privacy is a theme in interviews with investigators. Joshua Welton, who co-produced some of Prince’s work, and Hannah Welton, the drummer in the Prince-created band 3rdEyeGirl, said they were like Prince’s family.

Joshua Welton described Prince’s inner circle at the time of his death as “very, very, very, very, very tight” — including Johnson, assistant Meron Bekure and the Weltons. He said he had seen little of Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, in recent years. “He’s made comments like you guys are more family to me than my blood relatives,” Welton said.

Johnson and Hill were on Prince’s plane when he overdosed on the way back from an April 14, 2016, concert in Atlanta. Hill said that Prince told her he was depressed, enjoyed sleeping more than usual and was incredibly bored. He told her after his show that he thought he was going to fall asleep on stage.

The plane made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, and after Johnson carried Prince from the plane “like you would carry a little kid or a baby,” paramedics had to use two doses of a medicine that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. When Prince took a large gasp of air and woke up, he looked at Johnson without saying anything and Johnson told paramedics, “Prince feels fine.”

At the hospital, Prince refused medical tests. He told Hill that he had just mixed two pills — that he was a good judge of his body and wouldn’t do it again. But when she told him “no more pills right?” he wouldn’t agree.

“He said something like well then that means I can’t perform because my hands are hurting. My hands hurt,” according to a transcript of her interview with investigators.

Investigative materials released Thursday include several other interviews, documents, photos and videos. There are pictures of pills that were found in various bottles in several different rooms. Authorities have said many of those pills were not in their proper containers, and many were counterfeit.

The documents include interviews with Schulenberg and Prince’s inner circle, including Johnson, who told investigators he had noticed Prince “looking just a little frail,” but said he did not realize he had an opioid addiction until the overdose on the plane. After that, Johnson said he and others reached out to an addiction specialist.

But Johnson had initially contacted Schulenberg, his own doctor, to treat Prince in the fall of 2015. Schulenberg told investigators that Johnson texted him on April 7, 2016, saying Prince was complaining of numbness and tingling in one of his legs and in his hands and had vomited the night before. Schulenberg prescribed some medications under Johnson’s name and gave Prince an IV, according to documents.

Schulenberg asked Prince if he was taking anything for his hands and Prince said yes, but “did not know what it was,” documents show.

Johnson also called Schulenberg on the fateful day of the Atlanta concert before the flight on which Prince overdosed and asked the doctor to give Prince a painkiller. Authorities say Schulenberg did so — under Johnson’s name. Johnson contacted Schulenberg again on April 18, and expressed concern that Prince was struggling with opioids.

Schulenberg last treated Prince the night before he died, conducting a urinalysis that tested positive for opioids. Meanwhile, Johnson and others had reached out to addiction specialist Howard Kornfeld, who dispatched his son to Paisley Park to try to convince Prince to seek treatment.

Andrew Kornfeld showed up the following morning. He was among those who found Prince dead.

President Cyril Ramaphosa to 'lend a hand' in Mahikeng

President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken his own call to “lend a hand” and “send me” by convening an urgent meeting on Friday over protests in Mahikeng.

On Thursday evening, he announced he was cutting his visit to the UK short to intervene, bringing to mind the Hugh Masekela song he quoted during his inaugural State of the Nation Address earlier this year.

Ramaphosa had been participating in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London where he led a government delegation.

READ: Ramaphosa cuts short UK visit to resolve Mahikeng chaos

The meeting at 12:00 on Friday will be convened with structures of the African National Congress, the party’s leagues, alliance members and the ANC caucus in the North West.

Ramaphosa will be accompanied by ANC secretary general Ace Magashule, deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte and ANC national executive committee members.

Violence broke out in Mahikeng on Wednesday night when protesters took to the streets to call for the removal of Premier Supra Mahumapelo.

Vehicles were also set alight.

Call for calm, restraint

Protests against Mahumapelo brought the town to a standstill on Thursday as burning tyres and rocks were used to barricade the road.

Provincial police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Adele Myburgh said 16 people had been arrested since the protests started.

Her colleague, Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone, said a man was shot dead during a high-speed chase with police in Mahikeng on Thursday but that it was not linked to the unrest.

He said the chase followed a robbery at one of the hotels in town.

Ramaphosa has called for calm and asked all aggrieved parties to “express their grievances through peaceful means and engagement rather than violence and anarchy”.

He also called on law enforcement agencies to exercise maximum restraint in executing their duties to return calm and normality to the province.
